It is often hard to talk about race because white culture values certain ways of knowing and not others, and assigns a higher value to some ways of behaving than others. Because these ideas have been maintained over a long period of time, its is sometimes hard for people to notice that this culture is based in whiteness. What are the characteristics of white supremacy culture – and what do we do once we’ve recognized this?
Please note that this event is open to all, regardless of if you have a student attending Lake Harriet Schools or reside in the Fulton or Linden Hills neighborhood. That being said, this discussion will take place in an open, no-judgement space. The intent of this discussion is to meet participants where they are; one of YWCA’s goals is to “not change minds, but shift perspectives.” Please join us for this valuable discussion and consider embracing the chance to engage with others in your school and neighborhood as we learn together. And please invite others in your circle to join you!
